PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Two fishermen were rescued by a Coast Guard helicopter Thursday as they drifted on a life raft in the Atlantic Ocean. Coast Guard Sector Delaware Bay received a mayday call from one of the fishermen aboard a 53-foot fishing boat, saying their engines were on fire.
The men abandoned their vessel and got into a life raft.
They were hoisted from the ocean about 34 miles east of Barnegat Inlet.
